Ate here Monday night- only restaurant open in Loches- fantastic service. Great steaks and desserts and staff are very friendly. Couldn't fault this place as very busy and no one left waiting. Recommend for visit when in Loches.

We ate here most nights during our week in Loches. The food is fresh and there is a varied menu, portions are generous but not over-facing and the restaurant was busy every night with different nationalities, including french locals, so the atmosphere was good. There...More

Very popular on a Sunday lunch time, food is good and reasonably priced. Service is usual speed, but then again it was a Sunday. Castle and main gate are very close.
